Make Money Online With John Chow
May 5, 2007
John Chow, is likely the best known web entrepreneur on the planet. John Chow dot Com is a blog that helps you make money online. He is currently offering to link to my blog if I review his blog. Since his blog has a Google rank of 6, the web traffic back to my site could be astounding! So, call this an experiment, as it is a departure from my usual topics found here. While still related to sales and marketing, this experiment may influence my market approach.
It's difficult to argue with success. John Chow has managed to do exactly what he says. That in and of itself is admirable. What I like about his site is that he organizes his content via tabs at the top of the page. His "Home" tab features commentary, interesting products and useful technical information. He features separate tabs for "Advertise" and "Make Money" pages. At 300,000 page views per month from 200,000 unique visitors, advertising on his site might be a viable option for some web-preneurs. I particularly liked his "Make Money" page for one specific reason; He details exactly which methods make him money on a consistent basis and then outlines how to use them! If you follow Anthony Robbins advice, "success leaves clues," you will see that Tony believes we can achieve the same success as someone who has come before us if we simply duplicate his strategy and avoid his mistakes!
So there you are, John Chow's money making strategies are now in your hands! Remember... knowledge is not power, but rather potential power. What you do with this information is up to you!

Review of Idea Sellers by iReviewBlogs.com June 4, 2007
I found this website while browsing through blogannounce.info. I wanted to share this blog by Daniel Sitter, according to his about page, Daniel enjoys creativity, fresh ideas, constant expansion of his comfort zone, meeting people, sales and marketing. It truly shows in his blog and his entries.
My first impression of this blog is that it contains a lot of information. His entry length is bearable, concise and informative. I read about 10 entries and learned something from each. I really like how he integrates quotes, facts and useful links for visitors. He did a great job of personalizing the blog by posting a smiling picture of himself on the blog front page so I instantly was able to connect with him on a cyber personal level. My first impression pushed me to read more.
Daniel is an author by trade so the content is well written and easy to follow. He wrote the book, "Learning For Profit" and has another book called "Superior Selling Skills Mastery" in the works. The
blog focuses on the sale and marketing industry, but he includes everyone right away with his tagline that, "Everybody Sells".
His latest post, "Sales: Know Who You Are", provides the sales professional with relevant information that they can use and he relates with them by sharing the challenges that people in his industry face. He gives encouraging words and quotes. I really liked a quote he provided, I really liked a quote he provided, "Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, "Who you are speaks so loudly, I can't hear what you are saying." Keeping that in mind, act on these "feel good - be good" basics:
1. Listen intently.
2. Maintain a positive outlook.
3. Be persistent.
4. Be empathetic.
5. Be encouraging.
6. Smile. It's contagious!"
I went back to his earlier entries and they are consistently filled with great information. Even though he is targeting the sales niche, I feel that anyone could benefit from reading his blog. Here is an entry on February of 2007 called, "TheBig Toe, Feet and Life". A great entry that anyone can learn from. Most
people would not dig in deeper with this blog because they might think it is only for Sales Professionals. Sales Professionals will find useful information for their trade. For example, "Sales:Learn to Anticipate the Unexpected" is a great example for Salespeople to be entertained as well as informed.
I would recommend Daniel to get his own URL since the current one is way too long for anyone to remember. He took care of this on his blog by pasting each and every bookmark icon I think in existence. As well as each blog community widget. I am usually not a big fan of having too many of these posted on a blog, but I think in this case it would benefit this blog for those who wants to
This blog serves as an extension to his book which he does sell on the blog, but this is very acceptable. Not too many ads whatsoever on this blog, he did throw in a line of Adsense ads, but the majority of "extras" that he posted is very useful. I did find the daily cartoon insert to be out of content, but then
again, it gives us a window to his personality.
Another recommendation would be for Daniel to get another logo/banner design or shrink it. I think it was originally smaller and was expanded to a lower resolution , it just doesn't match the quality of his blog and first time visitors might downgrade the "first impression" by the logo alone. The "about" page came up with a blank background and didn't match the rest of the site, not sure why but maybe integration would motivate more people to read the bio.
Other than that, I think he has himself a winner of a blog and that many would revisit and learn from this man. I think he has a high potential to be an A lister, take a look for yourself. IdeaSellers
